bone marrow update
well, today's appointment was just for labs so i didn't actually see the doctor. so, i asked to speak with her nurse to ask her about the pain i've been having in the biopsy location. she said that experiencing pain 3.5 months after the biopsy isn't common but it's not completely unusual. however, it is a possibility that there is a little bit of nerve damage but i don't think that's the case. it feels like bone pain most of the time. since the hole isn't healed (filled back in) yet, it would appear that i am making red blood cells at a slower pace than "normal". they're supposed to call me to let me know if my cell counts are any different (higher or lower) than last time.
